HOAX – You Get So Alone Sometimes (Review)

Indie pop-rock band HOAX are back with their latest new offering “You Get So Alone Sometimes”. As the musical brainchild of Michael Raj and Frantz Cesar, the two ignite a self-described style into their empathetic music. With influences from 60’s pop, 70’s Motown and alternative R&B, their music explores social constructs underneath their infectious pop melodies. 

Detailing the human struggle of loneliness, “You Get So Alone Sometimes” embraces feeling alone and feels somewhat comforting. Mike Raj confides “I started thinking of it as the empathy of loneliness. It’s like a feeling of understanding what it means to be lonely and being okay with it, not okay in the sense of hopefulness – like “Oh don’t worry! It will be better in the future”, but more like reconciling with loneliness as a true mark of feeling and being human. We feel alone because we know what it feels like to feel together with others. One can not exist without the other.”

You can hear the band’s influences completely in this track and the overall atmosphere is truly breathtaking. Another fantastic single from HOAX.

Score: 3.5/5
